Brief_I/O

   VARIABLE  I/O  DESCRIPTION
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------
   r          I   Distance of point from z axis.
   lonc       I   Angle (radians) of point from XZ plane.
   z          I   Height of point above XY plane.
   radius     O   Distance of point from origin.
   colat      O   Polar angle (co-latitude in radians) of point.
   lon        O   Azimuthal angle (longitude) of point (radians).

Detailed_Input

   r          Distance of the point of interest from z axis.

   lonc       Cylindrical angle (radians) of the point from the
              XZ plane.

   z          Height of the point above XY plane.

Detailed_Output

   radius     Distance of the point from origin.

   colat      Polar angle (co-latitude in radians) of the point.
              The range of `colat' is [-pi, pi].

   lon        Azimuthal angle (longitude) of the point (radians).
              `lon' is set equal to `lonc'.

Parameters

   None.

Exceptions

   Error free.

Particulars

   This returns the spherical coordinates of a point whose position
   is input through cylindrical coordinates.

Examples

   Below are two tables:  The first is a set of input values
   the second is the result of the following sequence of
   calls to Spicelib routines.  Note all input and output angular
   quantities are in degrees.

       convrt_c ( lonc, "DEGREES", "RADIANS", lonc  );

       cylsph_c ( r, lonc, z, &radius, &colat, &lon );

       convrt_c ( lon,  "RADIANS", "DEGREES", lon   );
       convrt_c ( lat,  "RADIANS", "DEGREES", lat   );



   Inputs:                         Results:

   r        lonc     z             radius   lon      colat
